Transport Canada’s Transportation: Adapting to the Changing Climate Webinar Series communicates and advances climate change adaptation knowledge, understanding, and capacity in Canada’s transportation sector.

What the ISO14090 standard means for building climate resilience in Canada’s transportation sector

February 13, 2023 1:00 – 2:30pm ET.

The transport sector has been impacted due to a variety of extreme weather events (e.g. hurricanes, tornados, etc.), as well as slower onset impacts (e.g. changes in temperature, sea level, etc.), and there are multiple lines of evidence that these impacts are expected to increase in the future. Standards can play a major role in adapting to these climate impacts.   

The ISO14090: 2019 (Adaptation to climate change — Principles, requirements and guidelines) specifies principles, requirements and guidelines for adapting to climate change. This includes the integration of adaptation within or across organizations, understanding impacts and uncertainties and how these can be used to inform decisions.

During this webinar with Professor John Dora, a Royal Academy of Engineering Visiting Professor at the University of Birmingham and Visiting Professor at the University of Surrey, you will hear about how the principles of ISO14090 can help strengthen your organization’s climate resilience. Specifically, we will discuss the main clauses of ISO14090, and how to apply it, with relevant examples for Canada’s transportation sector. This information is meant to help you make the case for adaptation in your organization.

The webinar series is led by the Climate Change Adaptation Policy team at Transport Canada, with webinar hosting services provided through the Climate Risk Institute. For any questions regarding the webinar series, please contact TC.TransportationAdaptation-Adaptationdestransports.TC@tc.gc.ca
